Marlborough Head Inn

Mill Lane, DEDHAM, Colchester, CO7 6DH

Tucked away in glorious Constable Country, this 16th-century building was once a clearing-house for local wool merchants. In 1660, after a slump in trade, it became an inn. Today it is as perfect for a pint, a sofa and a newspaper as it is for a good home-cooked family meal. Traditional favourites such as deep-fried whitebait; steak and kidney pie; and breaded whole tail scampi appear on the menu, plus fish is given centre stage on Fridays. There is a terrace and walled garden to enjoy in the warmer weather and an open log fire to sit beside in winter.
